Electric power systems have experienced major changes since policy makers have opted for fostering renewable energy technologies. As a result many countries are experiencing a surge of renewable energy technologies within their generation mix. Thus, during the operation of the electric power system flexibility is required in order to respond to rapidly changing system conditions. Demand Response is one source of this flexibility with high potential. This thesis focuses upon the response of electricity consumers to actual electric system conditions. It includes analyses of the effect that DR has on different markets (energy and reserve markets), considering several DR mechanisms (those that focus on demand shifting and on provision of reserves), with several time scopes (as standing alone DR and in aggregation with other agents), and within several demand sectors (such as domestic, commercial and overall demand).
